"And speaking of tactics, how can we possibly ignore the single aspect of any simulator that adds most to the depth? Again, we return you to the accomplishments of UEFA 2008, which offered something called Custom Team Tactics. It’ll be back, in full glory, in FIFA Soccer 09, and it will boast a healthy assortment of customization options. There will be 11 total tactical sliders to fiddle around with, and they encompass a grand total of 140 attacking and 40 defending options, which means you could spend quite some time preparing for a match. Best of all, your selections can be crazy specific- what you choose for team strategy doesn’t mean your team has to adopt the same orders at all times. No, you can actually assign specific actions at particular times, which means only if faced with a certain situation will your players execute certain maneuvers. This gives the player more control over the action than ever before, and having your team AI react automatically will be a definite plus."
